The Philadelphia Jazz Project seeks the creation of a local songbook in the tradition of the Great American Songbook, which celebrates the most important and influential American popular songs of the 20th century.
The Philadelphia Songbook Concert will take place at Temple Performing Arts Center, 1837 N Broad St. at 8:30PM. Guests can RSVP @ [email protected] or register via eventbrite.com.
The event will include Jazz standards and popular songs penned and/or performed by local artists.
Philadelphia Songbook Volume 1 will feature performances of compositions by John Coltrane, Lee Morgan, Benny Golson, James Mtume, Hall & Oates, Norman Connors, Blue Magic and Jill Scott. Musical directors Alfie Pollitt and Denise King are joined by a team of local performers including Barbara Walker, Ella Gahnt, Pablo Batista, Tony Jones, Pete Chavez, Webb Thomas and others as they take us on a fascinating musical journey.
